As humble servant Jesus trod
Judea’s sun-baked thirsty land
This One Who was the Mighty God
Had come as Man as He had planned;
His great salvation was at hand.

Among the lowly made His home
He sought no glory, pomp or fame—
Was so unlike the lords of Rome
Those wanton knaves who craved the vain
And treated subjects with disdain.

He spoke of God as One He knew
Which common people gladly heard,
Exposed the false, espoused the true
Here was the living, breathing Word
To Whom the prophets long referred.

Compassionate to all who came
To leper, pauper, demon-bound;
He healed the sick, the blind, the lame,
He raised the dead, the lost sheep found,
And turned religion upside down.

He taught His own to be like Him,
With humble hearts to live and speak;
He washed their feet to show to them
That they like Him be servants meek
To bring God’s life to Jew and Greek.

In Christ we see exemplified
God’s justice, love and holiness
The great salvation He’s supplied
That meets our need of righteousness—
This is the gospel we profess.

Let’s live like Him with servant hearts
Not lording over those He brings
And show the love that He imparts,
Be faithful in the little things
Bond-servants of the King of Kings.

Accept Jesus as Your Savior Right Now and be Certain of Eternal Life.
